Drama/comedy. By Suzan Zeder.
Cast: 10m., 8w., with doubling, or increase the cast number by distributing the 49 roles. At the end of the 15th century, the tiny town of Frogsham musters its dubious resources to mount the Corpus Christi play of Noah and the Flood. This medieval play-within-a-play presents a teeming town full of characters who mirror their biblical pageant counterparts, including the Seven Deadly Sins. It also provides a humorous glimpse of 15th-century stagecraft and the timeless panic of performers who must go on before the show is ready. This universal play offers marvelous opportunities for medieval spectacle, innovative staging, costumes, masks and dance. With an expandable cast, this script features a full-length adaptation of the Noah play based upon the celebrated Chester and Wakefield Cycles. Unit set. Simple, medieval costumes. Incidental music score by Daniel Paul Davis available. Approximate running time: 95 minutes.
